NIROX Sculpture Park
Saturday 27 May 2017
ROOTS OF HUMANKIND
is a musical take on our contemporary presence in this ancient place – the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site – interpreting indigenous sounds and rhythms through modern allegories.
Musicians include Philip Tabane, Madala Kunene, Pops Mohamed, The Urban Village, Skorokoro Ensemble and Tabia.
The collection of performing artists will arrive at NIROX 3 days before the concert to engage, collaborate and rehearse, resulting in an entirely unique production, with artists performing on each others’ sets.
Sounds will include an array of traditional and home-made instrumentation, guitars, bass, percussion and voice.
Music for today – rooted in our rich past.
The ROOTS concert will be presented amongst the NIROX Winter 2017 sculpture exhibition: ‘OPEN LABORATORY’ – an exhibition containing the work of over 50 alumni artists from 6 South African universities: UJ, Pretoria, UCT, UNISA, TUT and Wits.
As usual, exceptional cuisine will be offered by the Epicurean Emporium together with a full bar.
Gates open at 10am and Music begins at 11am. There is ample secure parking inside the venue and concert goers are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy the full day of music and to tour the Sculpture Park’s Winter exhibition.
CALEO Wealth Management is the anchor sponsor for the NIROX Foundation’s on-going concert programme.
